Broadus tenor mouthpiece, anyone familier with this model?

Hey everyone,

I've got a Broadus tenor mouthpiece, but I haven't been able to find this model anywhere online. No idea when it was made, what it's worth, etc. If you have a moment and know anything about it I'd appreciate it. It is stamped "Studio Tested by Broadus" on the body and "McCathren" on the table. It has a large chamber, small rollover baffle, and rounded inner sidewalls (nothing extreme). Check out the pictures. Thank you for your time.

I own a Broadus tenor piece of the type pictured on top, with the diamond <SB> and rounded shank. I suspect they were Steve's first model, as they play with a strongly 1930s character.

(Note that Theo gives "1940s" as the start date for Steve and many other mpc makers. Steve, Otto Link and others actually started in the 30s, but the 30s are prehistoric to musicians today.)

This first <SB> model is much more common in tenor than alto for some reason.
